Losing a tooth can have a major impact on your self-confidence and self-esteem, and without a proper and prompt replacement, it can also take a toll on your oral health. Oakridge Dental Center can provide you many options for losing a tooth including dental implants, which can provide a more permanent solution for tooth loss.
What is a dental implant?
Dental implants are tooth replacements that rely on a metal post to support a custom-crafted artificial tooth or crown. The crown can be shaped and tinted so it matches the neighboring teeth for a completely natural-looking result. With dental implants from Oakridge Dental Center, your smile will look as normal and natural as it did prior to the tooth loss.
What benefits do dental implants offer?
Dental implants offer several benefits compared to dentures and bridges:
- They’re more secure so they won’t slip or cause sore spots.
- They look, feel, and work just like your natural teeth.
- They promote regeneration of jaw bone, helping to prevent bone atrophy that can cause additional tooth loss.
- They can be cared for just like your own natural teeth.
What happens during the implant procedure?
Dental implants may take a few visits to complete. Oakridge Dental Center wants your tooth to fit your mouth properly and match the surrounding teeth to give you a natural appearance.
